|Thread: 24mm end mill for 16mm collet?|
Boring head/bar for anything over 16mm imo
I've used a boring bar at high speed to 40+mm in steel
it comes off like gossamer with a fine feed and leaves a nice finish

|Thread: Laptop with a SD card slot|
It frees up a usb slot which is more flexible
|Thread: Honda SL125 timing - SANITY CHECK.|
Electronic timing running two sparks?
|Thread: Pattern making using 3D printing|
very nice work
|Thread: Distorted ship's hull steel panels|
I never knew about this but the moment I read it it made perfect sense
There are also coatings on the upper decks which reduce radar reflectivity/signature
The usas sooper destroyer had such a small radar signature it was a navigation hazard.
At night other vessels thought it was a small fishing boat, not a full sized ship

I can only talk about ships,
the royal navy ones would be as light as possible compared to merchant ships so this may account for some of the panel distortion
They are basically big speedboats with guns

|Thread: Club Constitution|
Current policy is the 99 caveats system so be careful before you receive money because you may be signing an agreement to repay it if one of the 99 caveats is breached

|Thread: MS 'Edge' - Points and Pitfalls?|
|Thread: Anti seize grease on Myford spindle nose?|
Just run your lathe backwards on the backgear by hand to unstick a chuck
I put a block of wood braced on the bed under a chuck jaw and voilla!
With a backgear lathe you never have a stuck chuck
I have put a bar in the oil hole of the pulley to give me more control

|Thread: Call me cynical / Call me thick ... but|
Time is like a toilet roll, the older it gets the faster it goes
|Thread: The Moon|
Used to take a lot of sights for navigation using anything and everything to while away the time at sea but I stopped using the moon because it's a stellar ferrari compared to anything else you look at up there
|Thread: CNC - What's the Problem?|
It's a bit like with cars
When cheaper self driving CNC versions become available will we all race off to buy one?
How much fun is it to push a button?
It's not about the destination, it's about the journey
|Thread: Ian Bradley's Drill grinding jig|
Seventy years since that article came out
|Thread: Power supply companies.|
Better off than in the USA
|Thread: Lathe improvements?|
Re: your narrow chuck work
No-one mentioned it but a recent ebay sale had the amazingly rare drummond 4jaw which was specially developed for large work bigger than the chuck itself, to fit into the gap
The jaws appear to be quite small compared to the chuck body

|Thread: 1.1 kw brushed motor Torque|
If you really want torque you must use backgear on a hobby lathe
Quickie jobs are not a big deal but if you need it for any length of time then backgear is the only way
|Thread: Lathe Rigidity Issues - Modification Opinions|
Forgot about a Drummond mod which noticeably improved spindle stiffness
|Thread: Excellent Chinese Chuck|
sanou seem to be flavour of the month at the moment. They supplied all the keyless chucks on Aldi Scheppach and Lidl bench drills recently
Runout wasn't particularly brilliant but they are nice solid bits of kit that do the job
They may have connections with and be doing work for Rohm
|Thread: Removing a J2 arbor from a drill chuck|
It's problably glued in and dismantling would make the job a lot easier
Track rod ends are similar and you can either use a big hammer or jury rig a joint separator
